Ten Houston Women You've Probably Dated

There's something about those Houston women.
Last week, our own Angelica Leicht regaled us all with a list of man-children the women of our fair city have probably dated. It was a frighteningly accurate list, according to the comments section. Sure, we all had a good laugh, but some of us also couldn't help but think that dating isn't exactly a cakewalk for us gentlemen (a term I use liberally), either. Dating can suck both ways, and since we at Art Attack believe in equality, here's a list to try and even out the playing field. And don't worry, guys. We've all had those feels, including yours truly.

The Xenocentric
She's the woman who just hates it here. And although here refers, in this case, to Houston, it really could refer to any city besides the Big Apple, the Windy City or the City of Angels. Houston is just so boring, you know? There's no culture here. It's not a gargantuan, sprawling metropolis with a burgeoning music scene, award-winning theaters and museums and a town where she can try creative cuisine. She's just got to get out of here, and she'll never stop talking about it. If her life is stagnant, it's Houston's fault, not hers. But as soon as she moves to New York, Chicago or LA, she'll surely flourish.

The Austin Hopeful
She could be placed in the same category at the xenocentric but, due to the proximity of our state capitol, this woman gets her own category. We get it, OK? Austin is a cool spot, and we too enjoy visiting on occasion. Believe it or not, a lot of us like Austin just fine, but it's tough to go on dates with someone who's constantly complaining about where she lives and wishing she lived just 160 miles northwest of here. Get over yourself or just relocate already, please.

The Hometown Hottie
This woman was the belle of every high school and college ball. Every guy wanted her number, attended parties with her despite being friend-zoned, and she hasn't paid for a drink since she persuaded her older brother to buy her beer in 10th grade. She feigns modesty, but she loves the attention, and everyone sees it. You especially see it. Those trust issues so many people have? This is how they develop them.

...this coming from the writer who, on a first date, told his gal that he had an STD: "Stamina."


I love snark as much as the next one, but Christ this article fails so miserably at being even slightly witty -- or readable, for that matter.

You missed several categories of women that I have been graced with since dating countless women in this fair city:

Vietnamese Party Girl

The Traveling Auditor

The Hispanic Girl with Too Many Tats (Drink Houston)

The New Money Girl

The Pothead

The Engineer Who Goes Out with Every Geezer in the Office

The I'm Just Doing My Basics at HCC Girl

The Married Immigrant

The Vapid Girl From the Woodlands or Deer Park who Thinks She has Taste

The Writer With a Boycut and Sits at a Bar and Scoffs at Anyone Making Small Talk

The Built Hispanic Jailbait

Half of these don't even apply to Houston and is just an 'I've had nothing but crappy experiences with women' article that was re-hashed from a similar OC Weekly article not too long ago. Shall I write you an article about the ten most cliche men a girl will most likely date in her lifetime?---AND make it relevant to Houston and not just the male species in general? Interesting read but it falls short.

Man, I live in Austin and I am sick of people thinking this city is like the gateway to heaven or something. This is a cool place, no denying the good times I've had, but please stop the obsession!

At least we have more variety than Austin... "Ohh you have 3 tattoos, 2 rescue dogs and ride a bike for exercise/leisure/transportation? Your so different just like everyone else in this city. Please explain to me again how the victuals you purchased at at Whole Foods are so much better than the stuff I buy from those evil corporate run grocery stores."

I'd rather the kids at HP waste my time with more articles about how they love Fall Out Boy than this.

hometown hottie, every guy she hung out with was in love with her because she had great boobs and a great ass. so they didnt have enough game to seal the deal, so they hand around as "freinds" til she gets drunk enough to give them a shot, yeah North side guy im talking about u. ten years later theyre still freinds, spinning their wheels, while she and i had a kid together because they have tattoos and she already told them she hates that. #idiots she also hates thugs because her brothers have been locked up for a long time, but keep waiting..

I dated the "Higher than thou" chick. First relationship I've ever been in. Dumped me a couple of months ago for her religion. I told her that within two weeks of dumping me she would go back to having sex with others and sure enough that happened EXACTLY two weeks after. She still going to heaven though and I am going to hell... or at least thats what she tells me.

I don't fit any of these, but know a guy who falls into several

For further consideration:

The Sugar Baby--that massive apartment/car/wardrobe/concert schedule was NOT paid for with her financial aid/waitressing/teaching money. Trust. This is confirmed by her blue-colar parents who say they've heard about you “for years,” but you’ve only been dating her for weeks.

The Wounded Bird--"I've been hurt, so I'll need you to go slow. Just fix my car/computer/broken heart until I ditch you." Usually for The Big Shot Oil Guy, the Dudebro, the Tortured Musician, or PrettyRicky's Nephew 's--who hurt her to begin with. But "he's given up the booze/drugs/strippers and we're really gonna make it work this time."

The Obscure Band Chick--She does NOT listen to commercial music and screens suitors with, "You don't follow SRV's fourth grand cousin, twice removed who plays ukelele for Hank III?" If you don't--Philistine--count on her impugning your s3xual orientation over your "lessor" band's concert T.

Wow, this is an absolute disgusting waste of everyone's time. Also, it's really great (and telling, as Autumn Smith said) that the Male stereotypes are far more relevant to Houston, and the Female list is just a bunch of stereotypes that aren't specific at all to Houston, but rather a running list of petty, societal views against women in general. Good job on journalism, Houston Press!

I find it very telling that two of the women implied to be obnoxious on this list are women described as having strong opinions, yet the article about the 10 Houston Men said nothing of the sort. I guess it's annoying when a woman shows she has a mind of her own and doesn't agree with everything you say! Heh. Shows massive insecurity on your part, writer.

What about the neurotic vegetarian/vegan that does nothing but worry and is about as much fun as a stick in the mud.

(Or)

The tattooed nit wit with more tats than common sense, and can't go a month without calling mommy and daddy for money, cause she like just had to go out and stuff ya know

(Or)

The sociopath who has absolutely no conscience, just does as she pleases and leaves a long trail  of bad relationships in her wake. These types live all manners of facades including being a devout Christians. More fun than a barrel of monkeys..

I've dated the "Austin Hopeful" and the "OMG Let's Get Married!" rolled into one ball of nuts.

one of my favorites: The Elitist-Hipster In Denial

Talks shit about hipsters, claims she isn't one.... wait, is that a bandana hanging out of your back pocket? You carry a pocket knife & tell EVERYONE about it? Oh, you cooked with that famous chef I like once? Yes, that is cool that you've done all of these things way before me. Please, continue telling me more.

Ha ha ha.  I am guilty of the Austin thing, but I stopped because it's way over crowded now and it became trendy.  Nice job with the black bars over the eyes. 

You could come up with a few more types here I am certain.

It may not seem like it now, but your higher power of choice blessed you. My first girlfriend was the same: you're going to h3ll b/c WE live together, b/c WE're not married, b/c you're Catholic, etc. Twenty-something years later, she's on marriage number three, can't pick a life direction, and her mother raised her kid.

"You carry a pocket knife & tell EVERYONE about it?" o_O You gotta find another bar to meet women. For the real though.
